Welcome to erato
« on: August 19, 2013, 10:43:07 PM »
Erato is the name of the server. I decided to name the Chicago servers after goddesses related to the Greek muses. The slave server is named Mnemosyne. She remembers all that you post, and exchanges backups with the remote backup server (Skadi in Florida.

The AJAX Chat is open for business. This is entirely experimental - we'll see how well the server handles it.

I set the DNS cache to a rather large number for Elliquiy, because we use a premium DNS provider and they charge a fee per ten million queries - something we could in theory exhaust. Though I changed it to five minutes some hours ago, people are probably still stuck with the old IP address, and others have edited their hosts file to point to the old IP address.

In the former case, opening up a command prompt and (in Windows) running
ipconfig /flushdns
and restarting your browser may help.

In the latter case, you will need to set your hosts file to the new ip address:
208.117.11.90           elliquiy.com

On a related note (people editing the hosts file to get around dns-based censorship), depending on how AJAX chat handles things, I am wondering what people may think of globally forcing ssl on site-wide ( https://elliquiy.com ) - this ends up circumventing the vast majority of cases of censorship and snooping, and having a new IP address gives us a good opportunity to do this.

People will need to be sure they can get to the https version of the site, however.

I'm kinda guessing full functionality is not up on the site, yet?  I'm posting this and I don't see any of the usual text modification options...plus, my normal links to the site are still bringing me to the Troll page...

Everything should be working, but your browser could be in a 'half-doesn't-get it' state - try the DNS suggestions mentioned above.
